Our High School Ministry exists to help our youth have a personal relationship with Jesus and feel God's power in their lives. We see this happen through connection: connecting students to God, their peers, and to mentors. Check out what's happening in the High School Ministry right now and find a place to connect!

9th Grade: Room 203
9th Graders will again be watching and discussing the History Channel's "The Bible" series. Youth will watch Bible stories “through live action and cutting-edge computer-generated imagery, offering new insight into famous scenes and iconic characters” (The History Channel). Ben and Mary Horne teach this class.
10th Grade Confirmation: Room 200
We have designed a year-long class to help our 10th graders gain a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, what that means in the Episcopal context, and how youth fit into their tradition. Table Leaders will work closely with 6 - 8 youth to talk, pray, listen, and gain support as they journey through the Confirmation process. Priests and Guest Speakers will teach the class.
11 - 12th Grades: Room 204
Youth will discover what it means to be an adult member of the church community as they explore following Jesus through church leadership and service. The class will emphasize serving Jesus, the church, and others. The class will build upon the promises made in Confirmation, most specifically focusing upon the vow to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.” Students will hear from clergy and lay leaders and they will perform service projects. Holly and Mike Melton and Bob Underwood will facilitate this class.
Expectations for Youth Behavior
Parents: We want to provide a fun and meaningful experience for all of our youth, Student Leaders, and adult volunteers. Read our Expectations for Youth Behavior here and have a conversation with your teenager about appropriate behavior at youth events. Thank you!
